Crown Move-in & Welcome Week 2015

Fall 2015 Move-in
Friday, September 18

Move-in Day Assignments
You will be assigned your move-in day via your UCSC email account in mid-August. If you are unsure of your assigned move-in date check your UCSC email account.  All move-in communications will be sent to your UCSC email address.

Move-in Time Sign Ups
Unloading spaces are limited, so it is important to sign up for a particular time slot for arrival on your assigned move-in day.

Check your e-mail and follow the link to sign up for your specific move-in time or use the appropriate link below.

Sign up for only ONE slot.  If you need to change your sign up, follow the link again, sign up for a different time AND remember to delete yourself from your previous selection so it becomes available for someone else.  Instructions for deleting a previous selection are on the sign up page.

Moving In on Saturday and Sunday
There is no Crown move-in during the weekend.

Moving In on Monday, 9/21 - Wednesday, 9/23
Continuing students choosing to move-in Monday 9/21, Tuesday 9/22 or Wednesday 9/23 do not need to sign up for a time on either Friday.  Please come to the Crown/Merrill Housing Office below the Merrill Taqueria when you arrive.  Arriving between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. is recommended.

Move-in Process

First, go to Merrill Parking Lot #119.

1.    Bring a picture ID (driver’s license, passport, student ID card) to the Move-in table to pick up your keys and Move-in tag.
2.    After checking in you will be directed to drive up to Crown. As we have limited parking, you will be allowed only two vehicles up to unload.
3.    You will be given 20 minutes to unload your vehicle(s) at the curb near your building.
4.    After unloading, you will need to immediately move your car to the East Remote parking lot.
5.    A campus shuttle will be available at East Remote to bring you and your family back to Crown to unpack and settle in.

If you arrive after 4:00pm on Friday, 9/18 please go directly up to the Crown/Merrill Housing Office located at Merrill College below the taqueria.

If you need to make alternative arrangements, contact the Crown Housing Coordinator before 5:00pm, Friday, September 4th.
Early move-in accommodations are only available for students who are part of the official Early Arrival Program.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in making move-in a success!
